The TFCC complex is a whole that is located on the pinky side of the wrist. The function of the complex is to maintain and stabilize the wrist joint and to absorb external forces.
The TFC complex is located on the pinky side of the wrist. It is located between the ulna (radius bone), radius (ulna) and the carpal bones. The TFCC consists of ligaments and cartilaginous disc. Which must ensure that the wrist joint is maintained and forces are absorbed.
Injury to the TFCC involves damage to the disc, cartilage or ligaments. The wrist, when making a movement, will feel painful and nagging.

The TFCC injury is in most cases caused by an acute overload, a lot of force released on the wrist. This can happen during a fall. During a fall, the wrist is often overstretched or a strange movement within the wrist may affect the TFCC.
TFCC injuries are common in sports such as gymnastics, boxing, rugby and hockey. The TFCC can also prevent injury in people with a longer radius bone. The space within the TFCC is smaller and therefore there is a chance that pain will be experienced more quickly.
If the above mentioned symptoms and complaints match, it is important to find out where it comes from. If the cracks are small, the TFCC will repair itself and it is important to keep calm, possibly by means of a bandage or wrist brace. It also doesn't hurt to go long with a physiotherapist.
